NYFW - Alexander Wang SS15 RTW
Alexander Wang Spring/Summer 2015 Ready-To-Wear
I'll never forget Alexander Wang as a finalist for the CFDA Awards in 2008, when Vogue featured this very photo of him with Caroline Trentini wearing this perfect blue dress. (Just to rub it in, that was almost SEVEN years ago).
That perfect blue dress and it's downtown chic is what made me fall head over heels for Wang's work in the first place.
Looking back at the dress and at how young Alexander Wang looks, it's actually incredible how far he has come. He grew up with his designs, as this collection so perfectly shows. He grew up in the chicest and in the most oh-so-Alexander-Wang way possible. I actually feel proud.
Sneakheads unite! I love the shoes in the collection, but not more than the scuba-meets-tennis dresses which look like sneakers themselves. I also love how timelessly sexy this collection is, in contrast to Wangs most previous collections. He's moved from designing for the fashion obsessed teen to the fashion obsessed woman. I love it. xx
